well about 2 months ago i bought 3 cb 350s for a grand. driving home i saw a bmw r80 and sold the cbs the next day. thinking the r 80 would be about 2500 bucks, the guy who owned it couldnt have been more of a dick to me, and wanted 5500 bucks. so i stumbled upon this thing about 2 weeks ago
2500 original miles and doesnt burn a drop of oil so i tore most of it down tonight and built my exahust
awsome little scoot. gonna make a tailsection next week one night and build a set of bars.
probably make my own rear sets for it and build a seat.
its an awsome little bike and a ton of fun already.
Looking forward to see what you'll do with this. Cool bike
Cant believe you cut into that!
With rear sets and a few shit parts taken off and a few performance parts put on you would have had a hell of a bike.
Im interested in seeing what you end up doing with this, but so far I cant wrap my head around what your doing! rears sets are out as far as I can tell and I guess you plan on installing a bunch of heat shields and insulation to protect yourself, your tire and your electronics?
what do you mean by rear sets are out? and i plan on rewiring most of it, and stuffing the battery under the tank in back of the heads.
its only a 500cc. if it was the v70 itd be a different story. ive seen those go for 8grand.
sorry for the crummy iphone pictures left the camera home today
Hell yea! I've loved Moto Guzzi's ever since I watched a co-worker rebuild his.
Its nice to see someone doing something other than a sporty or trump
Looks cool! And its nice to find something in good shape to start with, too. I got my parts back from the painter and will have my Guzzi back on the road this month.
thanks for the compliments, ill have some more up to date pictures tomorrow
i havent worked on it in a few weeks bc i hate myself right now but ill get over that soon.
warm weathers comming and this little thing is gonna be sweet
been in a super shitty rut, and i will post more pictures of the build tonight but this is where the bikes at right now. again i apologize for falling off the earth for a month. its rad to see the guzzi love
